Vonage Reviews

Vonage Well, in your scenario, one of two things would have to happen to use VPN for Vonage: 1.





Well, in your scenario, one of two things would have to happen to use VPN for Vonage:

1. Vonage establishes the other side of the VPN:

First, Vonage is not going to do this for legal reasons. The only reason you'd need a VPN to do this is to bypass restrictions placed by your Internet provider. Given the complex mishmash of laws, blocks, etc, Vonage doesn't even "officially" do business in countries that have Voip blocks, and won't support blocked service, so they certainly aren't likely to be complicit in helping you bypass the laws and/or terms of service of your provider. Changing those laws or TOS is your job. Breaking them is your decision, if you choose to.

Second, this would increase their bandwidth needs considerably, meaning poorer quality calls in the same bandwidth or increasing their bandwidth requirements for a single line. Not to mention the extra money they'd have to pay for their side of the bandwidth.

Third, this means all-new equipment, both on their end and on the consumer's end, and a much more complex connection. Holy Customer Service Calls, Batman!

Fourth, the extra delays introduced by the encryption/decryption of the packets is going to add delays to the calls, reducing the quality.

And finally, this is easily blocked by your local ISP. Simply look up the Vonage VPN server endpoints, and block connection to them, by using a circular or dead route to the IP address or blocking DNS lookup. Any decent admin could kill this off in about 10 seconds.

Maybe they could offer a "premium" encrypted service, but of course eventually the call will go out on POTS, which is just as easy, or even easier, to tap than Voip. So the encryption would only be good for Vonage-to-Vonage calls. Some people might pay extra for it, but not many.



2. You establish a VPN and connect to Vonage through it.

This is something you could do today. Simply find some way to buy some US-based bandwidth (a dedicated server account in the US, or some other VoIP-friendly nation, for example), install a VPN server and a proxy server on it, and you can use SOCKS or other secure protocols to create a secure tunnel to your proxy server in the US, which then hops out to Vonage and connects from there (see disclaimer below).

Sure, it'll cost you, but pool together with a few neighbors and share the Proxy server and the cost of same, and it becomes affordable (see disclaimer below)

DISCLAMER: Just be sure to check with local laws and TOC's to make sure that your provider does not ban voice or streaming application,or the use of VPN's to bypass any blocks they may have established (which they undoubtedly do, so I am including as a way to say if you break your local laws, I accept no responsibility and will not join you in the local lockup) and go for it!

Of course, if they find out, they can easily block either your specific VPN server, VPN from your account, or all VPN connections in general. So be sure you don't sign up for a really long term on that US-based server account, OK? They can also come for a persona visit with a couple of well-armed people carrying either a termination of service notice, a large bill with plenty of penalties, or an offer that cannot be refused for a free night (or year) of luxury accommodations in a grey cell in an undisclosed location. (see disclaimer above)

Your best bet is to get involved in changing your laws. Vonage, being in the US, can't do that for you. I can't do it for you. Only you, and any of your neighbors willing to take action, can do it.

Either that, or pay your local telco.
